We happened to "run in" to Captain Brady while visiting the fire house used for filming Chicago Fire. With great drama, he pulled in to the station house with the adorable Brady by his side. Immediately, Captain George beckoned us to join him and we...More
Ran into Captain George and his trusty Dalmatian, Brady, outside the fire station next to our hotel. He was willing to set up an affordable private tour for my friends at our conference and their families. Not to be missed!
Went on tour with 15 other colleagues. Captain George greeted us warmly and gave us a thorough tour of the fire house. He shared several touching stories regarding the fire house and people who have served there that was a great reminder of the sacrifice...More

Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale.
Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
